Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake is "deeply sorry" to anyone who felt offended by a "joke" wedding video for his and Jessica Biel's nuptials. The 31-year-old singer-and-actor has slammed the "distasteful" clip, which appears to mock homeless people, and while he insists the footage was not actually shown at the couple's wedding in Italy last Friday, he says the person responsible, who is thought to be his close friend Justin Huchel, will be made to do "at least 100 hours of community service."

The "unsavory" tape starts by saying, "Greetings from your Hollywood friends who just couldn't make it," and cuts to several homeless people, transsexuals and street musicians wishing them well with apologies for missing the big day.

In an excerpt from an apologetic letter posted on his website, Justin wrote:

Gilbert Gottfried Fired for Tacky Japan Tweets

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Television, Where Are They Now?,

Gilbert Gottfried and Aflac Duck

Winning! Gilbert Gottfried is currently walking the Charlie Sheen path toward success -- he just got fired from his TV gig. No longer will Gottfried power the grating voice of the Aflac duck, and you’ve got Twitter to thank for it.

The comedian went one laugh over the line when he cracked a dozen jokes in a 24-hour period, all of them about the massive catastrophe that occurred in Japan, via Twitter. Some of his ill-timed, tasteless cracks include: “Japan is really advanced. They don’t go to the beach. The beach comes to them,” and “I just split up with my girlfriend, but like the Japanese say, ‘They’ll be another one floating by any minute now.’”

Aflac didn’t think any of it was very funny, apparently. In a statement, the company said, “Gilbert’s recent comments about the crisis in Japan were lacking in humor and certainly do not represent the thoughts and feelings of anyone at Aflac.” They also promised not to rest on their laurels, adding “Aflac will immediately set plans in motion to conduct a nationwide casting call to find a new voice of the iconic Aflac Duck.”

Gilbert Gottfried could not be reached for comment about the situation. Stay up-to-date on all the celebrity gossip -- follow VIP Breakdown on Twitter.

Gerard Butler’s Cheeky Behavior

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies,

Gerard Butler wreaks havoc on setGerard Butler posed for a photograph with a doughnut in his butt—how classy.

The Scottish-born actor loved starring in new sci-fi thriller Gamer so much he decided to thank the directors by sending them a sugary treat, but tricked the filmmakers into thinking the doughnut had been tampered with.

“I wrote to the two directors on Gamer separately. I wrote that me and the stunt guys are having a blast and sent them half a dozen doughnuts each as a thank you. They were so chuffed. The next day we got six fresh doughnuts and shoved them between our a*s cheeks… and took a Polaroid. We sent this snap to the directors and sure enough, they thought they’d been eating the very same sugary treats. They were freaked out man.”

Gerard, 39, admits his immature behavior was mirrored by the rest of the cast and crew on Gamer.

He added to Shortlist, “It was my birthday that day and about 10 of the cast dropped their trousers to reveal “Happy Birthday Gerry” written across their cheeks. Come to think of it, there was a little too much a*s in the making of this film.”
